Spinal Tap DVDThis is Spinal Tap
      1984 | USA | Laughs: 8.3 (Laugh and Smile) | imdb: 8.0
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

This movie that defined the mockumentary genre pretends to follow British band Spinal Tap as it tours the United States to launch its latest album. The two lead band members feel so real you keep grinning from start to finish. A few things go wrong. You may surprise yourself being fascinated as though you were watching a doco about the Beatles or David Bowie, whose music Spinal Tap's resembles in some of its periods.

      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

Shaken by his mentor's demise, a mobster (Robert De Niro) seeks the counsel of a psychoanalyst (Billy Crystal) who reluctantly gets acquainted with the underworld. The string of uncomfortable situations and the interplay between the two main characters keeps you smiling. Don't bother watching the sequel, Analyze That. (Last viewed: September 2010)

Billy Crystal was credited as actor in the following film.
At the time, he would have been about 39 years old.
Throw Momma from the Train DVDThrow Momma from the Train
      1987 | USA | Laughs: 2.1 (Broken Comedies) | imdb: 6.2
      wikipedia | who was involved?

You know these self-absorbed movies about people making a movie? This movie is not about making movies, but it's written by a writer who seems more interested in writing about writers than about making people laugh. A writing instructor wants to get rid of his ex-wife, one of his students wants to get rid of his mother. The actors are well-intentioned, but what can they do without a script? I picked this up because I realized the site didn't have anything with Danny DeVito, who is supposed to be funny. (Get Shorty might be fun, but it's not a laugh-out-loud comedy.) I will persevere.

Analyze That DVDAnalyze That
      2002 | USA | Laughs: 1.6 (Just Awful) | imdb: 5.9
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

Dismal sequel to Analyze This. These retarded Hollywood scripte writers couldn't help themselves…instead of featuring a believable mafia concerned with extortion and car wreckers, they had to invent a James-Bond-scale heist and make it unravel in the middle of a movie set—don't you know the whole world revolves around movies? De Niro and Crystal's strong acting coax out a few smiles, but even they could not save the movie from its sinking, stinking plot. Pathetic. (Last viewed: September 2010)

Billy Crystal was credited as actor in the following film.
At the time, he would have been about 39 years old.
The Princess Bride DVDThe Princess Bride
      1987 | USA | Laughs: N/A (Light-Hearted) | imdb: 8.1
      wikipedia | dmoz | who was involved?

I waited 25 years to watch The Princess Bride, certain that with such a title, this had to be a "girly movie". Ironically, in the opening scene, that is the very fear of the present-era kid whose grandpa offers to read him the story. Cringe no more, this is no romantic fairy tale, but an adventure comedy loaded with humor if not hard laughs and with with interesting character—except for the pricess, of course. A sweet and entertaining film for a rainy Sunday afternoon. (Last viewed: March 2012)
